Any chance at all, that perhaps the newsreels from the war years (1941-1945) might show up here? Those would certainly be worth seeing.

Have you looked in the following section?
Universal Newsreels
http://www.archive.org/movies/collection.php?collection=universal_newsreels
It's growing, and there's lots of good stuff in there already.

Yes. I've been in this section. I was wondering IF there was any chance that the Universal Newsreels from the World War II era, (1941-1945) might have any chance at all of being added to the Universal Newsreel collections as part of what is already there.

I don't know the official word from the Archive (anyone?), but I do know that the original source of these newsreels has digital versions of the World War II material, so I would _imagine_ they'd appear online at some point, yay.

Thnaks Skip! This is absolutley a magnificent historical documentation and although it is probably impossible to even fathom having all that were produced in the archive the selection so far is fantastic. On a related issue: Does anyone know the status of the Fox Movietone Newsreels? Is there a chance any of those would ever show up here in the archives or does Fox still hold the rights to all of them?

Many of the Fox newsreels are copyright. Many are not, but it is very difficult to source copies of the PD issues.
